4) Feb. 12, 2014: Wolves 117, Nuggets 90


The Wolves were in the middle of a four-game losing streak, with losses at Oklahoma City and New Orleans, and home losses against Portland and Houston. They were looking to end their win-less drought as the Nuggets came to the Target Center on Feb. 12. Rubio helped the Wolves get a big lead early, with 8 assists in the first half. The Nuggets would fight back, though, and tried to limit the Wolves, but Ricky’s dribble drives and no-look passes to Kevin Love in the post made for a difficult night for the Denver defense. Rubio finished with another double-double, 11 points (4-of-6 FGs) and 12 total assists, and also added 7 steals. His passing and court vision helped Love have a huge game, with 32 points (17-of-31 FGs), and also helped Corey Brewer get to 22 (10-of-17 FGs).
